The newest advance in Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) offered at the Plastic Surgery Center is now the Drain Free Tummy Tuck.
A new FDA-approved engineered technology applies "Tissu Glu," a surgical adhesive that strongly bonds the tissue layers of the abdomen together. The bond reduces space between the layers where fluid may collect and helps reduce the need for drains.
Abdominal drains are uncomfortable and most patients and their caregivers have anxiety and concern about the care of the drains after the surgery. Studies have shown that patients who were treated with “Tissu Glu” were able to return to their normal activities sooner than those patients with abdominal drains.
